Where you’ll be

Minneapolis, Minnesota, United States

The South Ninth Street Historic District exhibits one of the city’s best and most cohesive collections of multiple-family dwellings from the turn of the century. Generally located along Ninth and 10th streets between the intersections of Park Avenue and Fifth Avenue

During the mid-1880s, the young City of Minneapolis was booming. The flour milling industry had hit full stride, bringing thousands of hopeful newcomers to town in search of new jobs and new homes. A rapid influx of new residents between 1880 and 1890 created a severe shortage of housing. As architects and builders scrambled to meet the demands, a new type of building – the row house – was introduced to the Minneapolis streetscape.


The first residents to settle in the South Ninth Street District were affluent professionals drawn to the area by its proximity to the downtown business district. Many of these wealthy businessmen, such as Samuel Morse, vice president of the Minneapolis Flour and Manufacturing Company, enjoyed living in row houses designed for wealthy inhabitants adjacent to the 10th Street and Park Avenue mansion.

The most outstanding feature of the South Ninth Street District is its uniformity of type, scale, material, age and design. Between 1886 and 1915, local architects including William Channing Whitney and Frederick Clark designed townhouses, row houses and flats based on Classical, Renaissance and Romanesque models. The red brick buildings feature an assortment of diverse details rendered in red stone and terra cotta.

My wife Monica and I are ABB hosts and love to travel. For our full time gig we run a non-profit that helps inner city families escape poverty. Of course we have to take in a Caribbean vacation every February and every other year we go big; so far have toured across China, Tibet, Burma, India, Nepal, Thailand, Egypt, Tanzania and most recently stayed in a fabulous Airbnb on the sand in the Galapagos. Stateside, 0ur favorite places to travel are New York, Chicago, Seattle, and San Diego. We feel blessed that we have been able to travel the world and so much of it with our children. Our next trip.... ?
